Noh: Azmin Ignorant Of The Law
PUTRAJAYA, Oct 8 – Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Tan Sri Noh Omar said Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali is ignorant of the law for blaming the federal government over the demolition of three houses and two shophouses in Subang on Wednesday.
Noh, who is also Selangor Umno Liaison chairman said the demolition of the houses and shophouses were done by people from Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) which comes under the jurisdiction of the state government. “I would have prevented the demolition job if the local authority is under my ministry, despite the court order. I would help the people and not demolish and only then try to find a solution,” he said.
He told this to reporters after opening the Strata management Organisation Convention, here today. Azmin said that Noh should have prevented the demolition of the houses and shophouses near Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport since they were on federal government land. Noh said he has decided to put up the 17 affected residents in new homes on Oct 10. — AFP
